THE LIGHTER SIDE "BROWN SUGAR" PLUMS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 10 October 1926
THE LIGHTER SIDE 'BROWN SUGAR' PLUMS In 'Brown Sugar'1 the one-time chorus girl, Renee Kelly, who be comes the wife of Lord Slo.ine (George Barraud), gives expression to some lofty thoughts. They have the oppor tunity of evading a contract which, if fulfilled, would give rise to a lot of unpleasant talk. But a sense of honour holds them to it. 'Better,' remarks Miss Kelly to her husband, 'that people should say things about us than ?that we should think them ourselves.' Introduced into the dialogue with out auy apology is the Wilde epigram: 'Punctuality is tho thief of time.' There is this passage: — Mr. Wykeham: One must live, you know. . Miss Kelly: Yes, but not with one's friends and on one's friends at the same time. . Mr. Wykeham: After all, people are as God made them. Miss Kelly: But some grow worse. ..A most enjoyable feature of the pro duction is Miss Kelly's number, 'He doesn't know -what it's all about.' Sw.eetly sung and expressively, acted.
